Kyrie Irving has been signed to Nike since 2014, which includes releasing eight signature shoes along with a handful of takedown models such as the Kyrie Flytrap.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, Nike is reported to discontinue Kyrie’s current endorsement deal at the end of the 2022-23 NBA season. His upcoming Nike Kyrie 9, which will debut this fall, will be his last signature shoe.
The report also stated that Nike Kyrie products are still expected to be released after Irving’s current deal comes to an end next year including bringing back retro styles from past releases.
Last year when the Kyrie Infinity (Kyrie 8) was revealed the Nets guard publicly called the design of the shoe “trash” on social media in June 2021 ahead of its retail debut.
“We don’t comment on contracts or rumors or speculation. Kyrie remains a Nike athlete,” a Nike spokesperson told ESPN.
